Paul Jennings' response to GP at Hand's expansion into Birmingham

Paul Jennings, Chief Executive of NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “We have previously raised concerns about GP at Hand’s expansion into the Birmingham area; our objections have nothing to do with improving technology, for the benefit of patients.

“Working in close collaboration with our GP provider organisations, we are supporting the development of a local digital offer that will help to transform the lives of our 1.3 million patients. This will be available to all Birmingham and Solihull practices by the end of March 2019.

“This is part of our commitment to offer patients local, responsive and high-quality primary care services, which meet their needs, as well as helping to future proof and sustain general practice.

“Working as part of the wider local health and care system, we are excited about the digital developments ahead for Birmingham and Solihull.”
